Hazel Easthope is Scientia Associate Professor at the City Futures Research Centre at the University of New South Wales. She has qualifications in sociology and human geography and researches in the areas of urban studies and housing. She has a particular research interest in residential satisfaction and the intersections between mobility, identity and home. Much of her research focuses on the development, management, governance and planning implications of private apartment buildings and estates and the lived experiences of their residents. Her interests in this area span property title and ownership structures, estate governance and management, urban renewal and housing redevelopment, building retrofits and upgrades, and resident relationships.

She regularly consults with government, community and peak body stakeholders. This has led to invitations from a range of academic, industry and peak body organisations to present her research findings and provide policy advice.
